Live Long and Prosper...


I have been really busy this week and feel like I’ve been out of touch.  I just read that William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy both turned 80 years old in the last few days.  Man, does that make me feel ancient!   

I can remember when Star Trek first came on, arguing with my Mother for TV rights.  I can’t remember what anyone else in the family wanted to watch and I didn't care.  I was pretty sure it couldn’t be as good or as important as Star Trek. 

I have remained a fan through the years, have seen all the movies and watched much of all the other Star Trek franchises and will still sit through one if I happen on it on TV here and there.  But that original Star Trek…I don’t think anything I saw before or have seen since on TV has excited me as much…

I wouldn’t qualify as an official Trekkie.  I never went to any conventions and never dressed up like Lt. Uhuru for Halloween or anything, but the show influenced me in indefinable and wonderful ways that I find hard to articulate. 

So in honor of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, here are some shots of space…that final frontier or at least of the sky where I think space is located.  May we all live long and prosper.

These are such beautiful pictures! I'm so intrigued by outer space and the bottom of our oceans. Two places I'd love to visit, hopefully not in the same trip:)
I see a green face in the second picture - a profile. Am I the only one who sees it? Perhaps a visit to the opthamologist is needed!

I see that, too, Gloria. It must be sun flare but maybe it's a little green man from space.
